The Salina Journal Saturday, September 1,1990 19 s* rt - open JCortese Era By the Journal Sports Staff jf • GUNNISON, Colo. - The Bob Cor£ iese Era at Fort Hays State Univer- $ my begins today as the Tigers meet 1 Western State College in a 2 p.m. |ICDT)kickofftoday. ft : The game marks the season openers for both schools. "My feelings after our scrimmage x <last) Saturday are that I feel pres- t «ured," said Cortese, the second* winningest active NAIA Division I \ loach who spent the last 10 seasons at Mesa State College in Grand Junction, Colo. "I don't think we are ready. If I had another week, I think we would feel more comfortable getting ready to play a game. We've «pent so much time evaluating people that we haven't put in everything we need to play a game. ' ' Fort Hays State returns 11 starters .(two on offense, nine on defense) from last year's 3-7 squad. The Tigers, a member of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, will play as an NAIA independent this ,. season. " : Offensively, the Tigers' attack will ' be directed by Bryan Maring, a 6-2, , 210-pound senior from Salina. Mar£ Ing has a corps of capable targets in *. tight end Tony Veglia (19 catches, 246 *. yards), Victoria wing back John « Ruder (10 catches, 202 yards) and ,.; Butler County transfer Gar Ball. *-; Returning All-America Mike Allen, ,1 who has been converted from corn- ^-erback to outside linebacker, spear- 1 -heads the Tigers' defense. Other key "defensive holdovers include Victoria safety Kurt Dinkel and Gorham tackle Greg Yost. £;'"• Western State, which also compiled a 3-7 record last season, boasts £38 returning starters. The Moun- C"taineers have a solid linebacking unit I in preseason All-America Luke Sol- »omon and Martin Maslonka (101 * tackles in '89).

Griffeys make baseball history SEATTLE (AP) — Ken Griffey Sr. and Ken Griffey Jr. made baseball history Friday night by becoming the first father and son to play together in the major leagues. And, they made it work — each singled and scored in the first inning for the Seattle Mariners. With one out, Griffey Sr. singled to center off Kansas City's Storm Davis and took second on Griffey Jr.'s single to center. Each time, the ball was taken out of play. Later, Alvin Davis singled home the 40-year-old Griffey and the 20- year-old Griffey scored on a wild pitch. Neither Griffey Sr., the left fielder, or his son in center field got any plays in the top of the first. A big crowd, swelled by seeing the Griffeys together, cheered loudly throughout the opening inning. Among the fans was Alberta Griffey, who watched her husband and son in the same lineup. Before the game, the fans watched on the video Scoreboard as Craig Griffey, 19, a cornerback at Ohio State, talked to his brother and father. "I'm very nervous," Griffey Sr. said before the game. "(Ken Jr.) wasn't as hyper as he usually is. I think he was nervous, too." "For the last year and a half, this is something that has been in the back of my mind," Griffey Sr., a veteran of 18 seasons, said recently. At 19, Griffey Jr., top draft choice in the nation in 1987 from Cincinnati's Moeller High School, arrived as a rookie for the Mariners. Against the odds, Griffey Jr. overcame his youth and inexperience and stuck. At 20, when most young players are in Double A ball, he blossomed and became the first Mariners player elected to the All- Star game. He was the American League's starting center fielder at Chicago's Wrigley Field on July 10. Now, Griffey Sr. and his son are together on the Mariners for the final month of the 1990 season. On Aug. 18, Cincinnati general manager Bob Quinn gave Griffey 15 minutes to decide among three options: To retire, accept his release or go on the disabled list. Initially, Griffey chose retirement, thinking the Mariners would be able to pick him up, allowing him to play with his son for a month. However, National League rules required a 60-day waiting period before a "retired" player could be signed by another team. Griffey said he didn't understand the 60-day rule at first. So Griffey "unretired," and the Reds released him last weekend. Wednesday, he cleared waivers and was signed by the Mariners. Griffey didn't play in Seattle on Wednesday and Thursday nights against Detroit. "This is the pinnacle for me, something I'm very proud of," Griffey said. "You can talk about the '76 batting race, the two World Series I played in and the All-Star games I played in. But this is No. 1. This is the best thing that's ever happened to me." Griffey, a .296 lifetime hitter, finished second in the 1976 batting race with a.336 average. Griffey said he hasn't ruled out playing next season, but he was concentrating on this season. The Mariners signed him for the remainder of the 1990 season. "This all happened because of what Junior has done," he said. "I never thought he'd make it to the big leagues as quickly as he did." And he never thought he'd play for 18 years, either. "I thought I'd have 10 good years and that would be about it," said Griffey, a key member of Cincinnati's "Big Red Machine" during the 1970s. He played on two World Series winners. The Griffeys have more than a father-son relationship. It's a relationship that has grown through baseball, "We're friends," Griffey Jr. said. "We've become more like brothers over the last four or five years," the elder Griffey said, "He's asked me for a lot more advice than he ever asked before," The Mariners' players appreciated the historic importance of what was happening. "I played high school baseball with my brothers and know how that felt,'' Scott Bradley said. "I can't imagine what it's like for a father and son to play together in the major leagues."
